Taking a motorcycle ride, be it for an afternoon or a longer trip, is a rewarding experience when there is more room to roam. Stop from friendly town to friendly town and experience the charm of our remote communities. Marvel at the badlands formations, rivers, mountains, and plains that are found in Northeast Montana. Below are some recommended trips, but feel free to take the scenic route and any side roads that strike your fancy.
From Glasgow go South on Hwy 24—continue across the top of the Dam & Enjoy the Great View. Take Hwy 117 to Nashua, and then Hwy 2 back to Glasgow.
From Glasgow, go north on Hwy 24 to Opheim, Take Highway 248 to Scobey (you’ll be riding just 10 miles south of the Canadian border) then Hwy 13 South to Wolf Point, and West on Hwy 2 back to Glasgow. All 3 of these towns have gas, food, drinks, and friendly people. In Scobey you can walk the boardwalks of a life-size old west Montana town. Pioneer Town contains more than 50 buildings from the Homestead Era.
From Glasgow, go north on Hwy 24 to Opheim, take Highway 248 to Scobey, then Highway 5 to Plentywood, Highway 16 South to Culbertson, and ride Hwy 2 back to Glasgow. There is food, lodging, gas in each of the towns above, with a town stop about every 50 miles. Lots of Open Space….let ‘er roll.
From Malta travel south on Hwy 191 to Zortman. This sleepy little town in the foothills of the Little Rocky Mountains. Be sure to plan a couple hours to pan for Gold at the Zortman Motel & Gas Station. They will show you how it’s done.

Turn North on Hwy 66 and you’ll travel through the Fort Belknap Indian Reservation to Fort Belknap. Return to Malta on Hwy 2.
